Be the change. Create racial justice in our community!
Join us on Sunday, October 1, to discuss how to take action to promote racial justice throughout New Jersey and the nation. We will gather in solidarity with our brothers and sisters of color, the Muslim and Jewish communities, the LGBTQ+ community, the immigrant community, and every person targeted by those who would divide us.
The Day of Service, Learning & Unity is a multi-community event supporting the goals of the March for Racial Justice in D.C. Advocates for justice, equality, and peace will speak and facilitate workshops and discussion groups to delve more deeply into the systematic and institutionalized injustices faced by people of color in the U.S.
